The Most Extraordinary Buildings Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright
Ask any American to name an architect and chances are they will say “Frank Lloyd Wright”. Countless books have been written about this prolific designer who saw more than 530 of his buildings constructed. His ground breaking styles are recognizable to every student of architecture. If you have visited Falling Water, the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, or other Wright buildings, you have experienced the genius of the work of American’s most celebrated architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
On Tuesday, April 25, 7:00pm, The Asheville Chapter of the American Institute of Architects is hosting a screening of Masterpieces: The Most Extraordinary Buildings Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright at The Grail Movie House, 45 South French Broad Avenue in Downtown Asheville.
